and jquery. Now, I would like to practice a little bit before the big day. The test I will be given I presume it will be turning a photoshop design into a fully working
web page. So does anybody have good suggestions, tips, resources, ideas, mock ups that I can use as an excercise etc etc? Any help ould be much appreciated
First off, don't even think about "slicing" up a PhotoShop mockup. If that method was even mentioned, I would not hire you!
Learn to do the entire layout using CSS "styles" to design the page.
So for example, create a PS doc with 6 randomly spaced rectangles... just give them each a unique color and a set px dimension. Then learn how to duplicate that using just CSS as a web page.. 6 colored rectangles spread out over a web page.
For reference you'll need to understand the "box model": http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_boxmodel.asp
More about CSS: http://www.w3schools.com/css/
and basic HTML: http://www.w3schools.com/html/
Once you can do that, move on to a more complex page.... pick any Web page, break it down into 6-10 sections and see if you can duplicate those sections and positions on the page. The actual content is unimportant, just learn to position the "container" <div>s.
